I hurt myself today.
 
I ride a motorcycle everyday. I go off roading in my truck. I shoot IDPA. But do I hurt myself doing these dangerous things? Nope. I was playing racketball with my wife. I am too competitive. The second serve of the first game I cahsed a ball right into the wall. I went down hard. I thought I may had sprained my toe. But then I took off my shoe and realized my big toe didnt look right. I grabbed it and straitened it out...yea, yea, stupid I know. I ended up going to the Doc. My big toe is actually shattered. I may have to have surgery. I wont know until Friday morning when I see a specialist. I am freaking out.

Sorry Rick. Hope there's little pain. Don't fret. What's done is done brother. Relax.

Now you all work on fixing it. You'll be fine. Plus look at the positive side. Every cloud has its silver lining -- from now on you'll always know when it's gonna rain.

Agreed!
That and it could have been way worse.. That time spent at the Dr could have kept you from an even worse danger!

To see if I still feel...


Sad damn song. Originally by NIN, but Cash's version damn near makes me cry.

Thanks Hockalouis. But I already know when the rain is coming. Sadly I am pretty good at hurting myself? I am amazed I am still alive! LOL.

Youre a funny guy! LOL.

I am suprized how little it really hurts. It has its moments. But it is really not that bad. I almost didnt go to the doctor. But my wife made me go. I was going to tough it out for a few days first. LOL

Maybe this will make you feel better. I broke my little toe some 20 years ago by walking into a chest-of-drawers. At least you had a reason!

And yes, I guess there aren't many nerve endings in the toes...I only found out I had broken it years later on an unrelated x-ray.

Good luck.
